Hi Roger,
Despite she wanted to hide, you managed to do the job and capture her. :) Beautiful portrait of this shy girl, her pose and face mimics are really expressive. Excellent sharpness and black and white tones, TFS!

Hi Roger,
Nice caught of view and well taken picture, she is so lovely, good contrast and light and picture taken at the good moment...

Hi Roger:
fantastic P/W
very good cature

I love this one, Roger. You really captured her reticence in this body position, with her hands behind her, head down and turned partially away, but she is still looking at you out of the corner of her eye. Great DOF with the background visible but not distracting from the sharp details of the girl. B&W was a great choice for this one. I look forward to more posts from Taiwan ...

Ahhhhh that is so cool Roger! Shelby was this way for a long time...then was ok...and now she puts her hands up again! ARRGGG! Love the expression here, the BW is marvelous! Good job!

Hi Roger...
Beautiful shot...
Nice moment for take this photo...
She is so lovely...

She may not have wanted to be photographed...but you definetly have caught her in the cutest pose. She's giving you that slight peek out of the corner of her eye to see if you are still there interested in her. It's a great shot...wonderful photo!

Nice portrait!
Excellent sharpness and black and white tones.
Very well done.

Hello Roger,

You have captured her mood perfectly.
Your positioning of the little girl at the edge of the frame emphasises her determination ... 'I am not going there!'
Lovely details in theis irresistable shot.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

hi roger,
this series of yours from Taiwan is very interesting - I like these "stolen" shots, they show a side of people which doesn't come out when they consent to be photographed.
this little girl's expression is fantastic - the look in her eye is so powerful that it dominates the entire photo.
great choice of DOF.

Boa noite Roger
I feel that your travel gave you the chance to get anther expessions and poses in Portraits.This is fantastic...not all the great capture but also...another way to interact ...she seem so shy...and so delicious. I love it.
My regards
